The Golden State Warriors have filled the roster spot vacated by Julian Washburn by signing Damion Lee on a two-way contract. The shooting guard returns to the Bay Area team after it initially looked like he would be offered a contract.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania confirmed the deal which will see Lee return to the Warriors for whom he played 30 games last season. He averaged 4.9 points and 2.0 rebounds in 11.7 minutes er game.

“Guard Damion Lee has agreed to a two-way NBA contract to return to the Golden State Warriors, league sources tell The Athletic,” Charania wrote Sunday.

Lee has played 47 games in the last two seasons and has reportedly shot over 40 percent from the field between the NBA and G League last season. He is expected to provide depth in the wings and according to Yahoo Sports, the Warriors roster is complete with the arrival of Lee with 14 NBA contracts and two two-way players.

The 26-year-old will be limited to 45 days in the NBA with the Warriors and he will play the remainder of the season for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League. Ky Bowman is the other player on the team on a two-way contract.

Meanwhile, Steve Kerr believes new center Willie Cauley-Stein will have the same impact JaVale McGhee had when he was with the Warriors. The 25-year-old signed from the Sacramento Kings during the offseason and the Warriors coach is certain he will provide a “nice counter” to Kevon Looney, who is likely to be the starting center.

"He's really mobile. He gives us the lob threat that really only JaVale McGee has given us in the five years I've been here in that five spot," Kerr told Warriors insider Monte Poole, as quoted on Yahoo Sports. “Willie reminds of JaVale in terms of his speed and capabilities. He gives us a nice counter to [Kevon Looney]."
